Lolis Rocha is a registered nurse and Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist (CDCES) specializing in the care of adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.  She was motivated to specialize in diabetes because her mother lived with this condition for over 30 years and has lost many family members to diabetes complications. She has a special interest in working with the Hispanic community to provide diabetes education in their native language. 

Lolis is the Diabetes Education and Program Manager for the Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center.  In addition, she manages special clinic programs, develops departmental policies, procedures, clinical workflows and oversees daily standard work.
